Shifting the mindset and harnessing the magic of ADHD

A 2-Part Workshop for Parents and Educators

Is ADHD on the rise? Is it over-diagnosed? Or are we as society just becoming more and more aware of it? While more boys seem to be diagnosed than girls, up to 75% of girls and women with ADHD go undiagnosed.


Here's the thing...

Like so many things in life, ADHD urgently requires a reframe. If you or your child has this diagnosis, it’s time to recognise and embrace the incredible gifts it brings along with it. 


ADHD isn’t a doomed diagnosis and for so many, their success in life is because of it, not despite it. 


I only realised I had ADHD in my 40’s. It was as if suddenly all the life in which I had always felt so different lit up like a Christmas tree. It made sense! 


As massively frustrating as some of the challenges can be at times, instead of letting them get me rattled, I've learned that there are ways to navigate these while still harnessing the awesome superpowers of ADHD. 


The golden key in my own journey has been fully understanding all things to do with this difference in thinking.

hi there,

I'm Naomi Holdt

Wife and mother of two young children. I am a psychologist, author and speaker with over 20 years of experience in education, educational psychology and psychotherapy with a special interest in the emotional well-being of children and young adults.


With an initial teaching background, I've gained insightful knowledge of the role of both parents and teachers in supporting, nurturing and helping young people reach their potential.


I graduated cum laude with an MA in Educational Psychology from the University of KwaZulu-Natal and run my private practice in Hilton, South Africa.

I've spoken countrywide and my online parenting courses have now reached an international following.


"Thank you, it has been hugely enlightening and jam-packed with information!"

My experience with ADHD...

Millions of adults and children around the globe have been diagnosed with ADHD, and the number seems to be growing.


Is ADHD on the rise?

Is it being over diagnosed?

Or are we, as society, just becoming more and more aware of it?


While more boys seem to be diagnosed than girls, up to 75% of girls and women with ADHD go undiagnosed. I frequently have devastated, despairing parents come and chat to me and say something along the lines of “Naomi, my child has just been given a diagnosis of ADHD!” Their hopelessness stemming from the fact that this diagnosis is all too often paired with pathology, disorder, impairment and challenges.


Here’s what my response has been: 


“ADHD! That’s AMAZING!” 


Why? Because yes, absolutely there are challenges that come along with having ADHD traits, but we don’t talk about the flip side of the coin - within those challenges lie great talents. When we know how to support these challenges, we can harness all the many superpowers that this diagnoses holds.
